Janet Jackson found the strength to carry on.



Janet’s father Joe Jackson passed away in June after a battle with cancer.

During her show at New Orleans’ Essence Festival on Sunday, the pop star said a few words about her dad before revealing she nearly cancelled the tour.

“Without his drive, his strength, we wouldn’t have this success,” she told the crowd. “We’re a black family that came from Gary, Indiana, and we broke all kinds of records around the globe. That’s truth.”



Janet added that Mr. Jackson would want her to continue the tour.

“I think my father [would’ve] said, ‘Janet, please finish what you started. And I will be there with you every step of the way in your heart.’ So here I am.”
